Subaru Review Stalls

NEW YORK – Ad agencies scheduled to meet with Subaru of America representatives have had their meetings postponed, according to sources. Executives familiar with the review said that the meetings were being put off until the carmaker hired a vp of marketing. A source familiar with the search said the company was down to two candidates as of last Friday. Contenders are Arnold Fortuna Lawner & Cabot, Boston; Bloom FCA; AC&R; Houston Effler Hampel & Stefanides; Ammirati & Puris; TBWA; Kirshenbaum & Bond, all of N.Y.; Fallon McElligott/Minneapolis; Kresser/Craig, Santa Monica with Waring & LaRosa, N.Y.; and Temerlin McClain, Dallas.
